Yeah, Hoppy hit it on the head. We don't have an art staff to convert/recreate people's sketches to quality files.

However! if your idea is just simple text and shapes, We can deal with that. I can convert that for you.

Another good idea for a Tee Shirt design would include pearling on the plant - I didn't think of that before or I would have tried it. Can we withdraw a design and replace it with the new, longer, lower, wider, more horsepower version?

I hope you're not withdrawing your first entry!

My 2 year olds entry...

If I did a drawing and scanned and entered it like this would it be OK? Remember youre talking to an idiot when it comes to these things.

Yes, you can withdraw, just edit your post. Everything is final at the closing date, 2-01-2011.

Editing is good. You get the best product that way.

Yes, entering a scan is acceptable. please scan it at 200-300+ dpi (dots per inch) and the design should be around 10"x10". And you have to promote TPT.

I like the first one with the altum angel... only thing is the plant looks more like a claw or hand about to devour the fish... also, I hate the font. The fish is awesome. Love the "plant head" guy... Also like the splashes of color on the cardinals and denisons, but dislike the plants...

just random criticisms... would buy a shirt though if it was cool...

the png is for cafepress. It's a lossless compression unlike jpeg where you can see funky pixels in fields of color... Having it on layer is for making it transparent. It's not necessary if it's printed on white t-shirts. It save me the trouble of converting.

You can give either format to me..

ps... For non-photoshop people, you can use what comes with Windows, "Paint"

To each his own. Hopefully we'll have multiple options for t-shirts.

Design # 1. (#2 coming in a few days)
It's in a PNG but i totally missed the transparency part, it's black and white so easy to select etc. (I can email it in correct format if needed).

(also needs a little bit of smoothing out & such, but thats cake)

This would be on a black shirt ideally, but white would obviously work too!

Either the shrimp is HUGE or the erio is TINY!

***Edit: You can't see it, but there is an 8px white border framing the entire thing!

I made a sketch, and now I'm waiting for my fiance to actually do something with it in Photoshop. I'll start nagging him on it this weekend, since he does work all the time during the week.

I really like the last one! Definitely something I would wear.
